Frequently Asked Questions

Walla Walla University uses the direct deposit system for the payment of employment earnings as an alternative to issuing periodic payroll checks. Your net payroll earnings are electronically deposited each payday into an account of your choice. The type of account may be either a checking or savings account in any financial institution which accepts Automated Clearing House (ACH) payments.

Direct deposit forms are available on the Payroll website in the Forms section. To change your account, print this form, fill it out, and attach a voided check to it. The completed form should be returned to the Payroll Office for the changes to be made.

If you have just signed up for direct deposit or have just changed your deposit account, you will receive a paper check the first payroll after the change. The second payroll will be deposited directly to your account.

Direct deposits are made biweekly on the Thursday following the end of each pay cycle. There is a payroll calendar available on the Payroll website with specific pay dates for this school year.

You can estimate your paycheck amount by using the Paycheck Calculator link available on the Payroll website, under Resources. Enter the state in which you work at the top of the screen. It may be helpful to have an old paystub handy for the necessary tax information. Note: This is an estimation and should not be considered to be the exact amount which you will be paid.
